Common Employment Law Issues
Common disputes with employees or contractors can be addressed in advance by handling them in a written agreement. A contract can provide protections for the company through restrictive covenants, which prevent employees or contractors from engaging in certain activities both during the term of the contract and sometimes afterward. For instance, workers may have access to information which the company considers confidential. This may include financial data, product design information, or customer lists. Generally, this information is valuable to the company and disclosure of the information could be detrimental. Prohibiting the disclosure of confidential information even after a person is no longer employed can ensure such information does not fall into the wrong hands. Other restrictions against soliciting customers or working for competitors can further protect the company. Such restrictions help prevent a company from investing training and other resources into a worker for the benefit of another party. These provisions must be carefully drafted to ensure that they are enforceable and provide the protections the business needs. Employers should not attempt to draft such agreements alone. They should seek the assistance of an attorney.
